There are so many ways I’ve tried to start this post, but it all comes down to this: my heart is heavy, filled with sadness, and heartbroken for a family I’ve never met. Never read their blog, never knew who they were, until yesterday. A mama’s sweet little boy was hit by a truck and killed over the weekend; he was just a little older than my own little boy.
It’s times of tragedy that make the mundane seem so special, that make me realize that fits and tantrums and frustration are temporary, but underneath all of that, bubbling up to the surface always, is the deepest love of a mother for her child. Those moments of sweetness are magical and blessings beyond my wildest dreams, and my hope is that I will get stuck in the good ones.
There are a couple of ways to help this sweet family, first and foremost always in prayer – for peace, for understanding, for freedom, for compassion, for love, for God to be near. Thrive Moms is taking donations as well, so if you feel led you can click here and look on the left sidebar for a PayPal donate button. Little Boogaweezin has also made shirts with Ryan’s image on them and all profits are going to help his family as well.
Hug your loved ones close and never pass up a chance to share love with them.
